I am often asked about the products I use in my daily life...

What I think is migraine freedom friendly and safe to use.

Let’s face it - shopping used to be so much easier pre migraines. I would go to the store and buy what looked good or what was on sale. Words like natural, fresh, healthy, and whole grains would lure me in.

Fast forward many years and a lot of experience later, I learned how important it is to read labels thoroughly and not be drawn in by flashy advertising and buzz words.

Packaging can be deceiving and doesn't give the whole picture about a product.  Reading the nutritional label and/or researching a product is the only way to determine its quality.

It took me a lot of trial and error to find products I like, that work well, and are safe for myself and my family.

I'm sharing my experience and research here with you in hopes you will find products that work for you as well.

Below is a list I have compiled of some of my go to products.  I will continue to add items as I find new favorites...as well as delete items that no longer meet my expectations.

Young Living Essential Oils

I have been using Young Living essential oils for several years.  While my focus is not on selling oils as a business (that’s not my thing), I have been asked about oils for migraine, about Young Living, and about buying & even selling their products. If you are interested in oils, I hope that this information helps with the “which option” sign up portion of joining Young Living.

The first thing you will likely ask yourself about signing up with Young Living is “How much will it cost me?” The answer is that it depends on what you want from your membership, but please remember that you are never under obligation to buy. However, there are perks when you do and if you want the benefits, you must meet purchase requirements (again, these are not membership fees). Regardless of the method you use, the best way to purchase your oils is to sign up. You can’t get member-only discounts and freebies any other way!
